Research directions in Australian, Canadian and New Zealand studies

The Faculty of Arts and the Association for Canadian Studies in Australia and New Zealand recently conducted a workshop focused on ‘Research Directions in Australian, Canadian and New Zealand Postgraduate Studies’.

The convener was Dr Robyn Morris from the Faculty of Arts and the facilitator was Dr Larissa Lai from the University of British Columbia. Dr Lai presented a keynote address on the topic, ‘The Writing Process: The Writer as Critic’.

The workshop, held in the Moot Court, drew postgraduates from the University of Adelaide, University of Melbourne, UOW, Griffith University and the University of Waikato.

It involved a summary of research by postgraduates across a range of areas and sessions also on applying for grants and writing for publication.
